The last Jewish child born in the German village of Kippenheim in 1934, Inge experienced Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass) and was imprisoned for several years in a Czechoslovakia concentration camp.

Miraculously, Inge and her parents survived and moved in 1946 to the United States where Inge studied to become a chemist and authored six books on her experience. Now retired, Inge travels the world to speak about the Holocaust, tolerance, and human rights.

As a guest lecturer on the 13-day Jewish-themed cruise, Inge will share her story as travellers discover European monuments, museums, and traditions significant to Jewish history.

Cruising the Danube from Budapest to Prague, the itinerary includes visits to Europe’s largest synagogue, Prague’s Josefov (Jewish Quarter), the remains of ancient synagogues beneath Neupfarrplatz in Regensberg, Nuremberg city sightseeing, an optional excursion to the Salzburg synagogue and the WWII Jewish ghetto of Terezin.

The Jewish Heritage Cruise departs October 24, 2013 and is priced from $3949* per person twin share.
